Recipe Budino Al Cioccolato


  • 8 3/4 oz. slices of Panettone
  • 5 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup bitter cocoa
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 1/3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur


Cut the Panettone in small cubes.

Put the butter in a small pan and melt it over low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar, cocoa, and flour. Blend in 2 tbsp. cold milk, constantly beating to obtain a smooth cream without lumps. Mix in the remaining milk, place the pan over low heat, and add salt. Stir frequently as the cream thickens. Let the mixture boil a minute or two, then remove it from the heat.

Pour the mixture into a large bowl, mix in the Panettone cubes and sprinkle with the orange liqueur. Put the bowl in a larger container filled with ice cubes. As the pudding cools, stir occasionally. Divide the pudding among six dessert cups and refrigerate them for at least one hour before serving.
